The other night we shredded a green mango and made a salad that was tart, sweet, a little hot, and completely delicious. This recipe makes two very decent portions; if you want to feed more people, it's easily doubled or even tripled.
Green Mango Salad
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup chopped basil
2 scallions, minced
1/3 cup roasted chopped peanuts
2 T. fish sauce
3 T. lime juice
4 t. brown sugar
1 t. chili garlic paste
1. Shred the mango, either using a grater or (much quicker) the shredding blade on a food processor.
2. Mix with the cilantro, basil, scallions, and peanuts.
3. Pour dressing over all, and serve immediately.
